Smart Employee Gets Fake Fired to Prank Awful Customers

This young employee asked whether it was wrong to toy with the emotions of overly dick-ish customers by getting fake fired in front of them. It seems like a pretty harmless practice and gets bad customers to rethink their roles. We wonder what would happen if a customer just said "good!" People have ways of dealing with bad customers like this flight attendant who handled a problem flyer or this donut shop owner responding to a bad review with humility.

Server Accidentally Serves $4500 Bottle, Restaurant Is Actually Cool About It

A UK steakhouse got some free publicity over the awesome fail of a server who mistakenly served a crazy expensive wine. Seems like a win to be the person who finished dinner and only afterwards realized they drank a bottle of wine that's worth a car. Seriously, each sip of that is worth like 200 dollars. Anyway, it seems like the restaurant was cool about the mistake, so that's nice.
